➲ Afterburner Compensator
The CBC Afterburner compensator is a muzzle device that designed to reduce flash intensity while suppressing recoil. These linear compensators are machined from quality steel and finished with an exceptionally corrosion resistant salt bath nitride for a lifetime of service. It utilizes a linear design to direct the high-pressure gas behind the bullet in a straight line away from the shooter which results in a reduction of perceived noise. Due to its six-hole design surrounding the central bore, it provides effective flash suppression that preserves the shooter’s vision in low light conditions.
